Dominic Thiem is not going through his prime and to the lack of results that were in evidence in his time at the ATP 500 in Dubai, there are physical discomfort in one foot that his father, Wolfgang Thiem, revealed in an interview for the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung.
“We have taken a few days off, without even training. We want to restart everything a little to come back with energy, and that is joined by some annoyances from Dominic in one foot. He always has them when he plays a lot on hard court, it is not especially serious, but a kind of callus develops that can be irritated by the force he makes when sliding on these surfaces. It is due to the position of your feet and we are analyzing how you solve it. The use of templates does not convince us because it causes damage to other parts of the body, “he said.
The world ranking number 4 has a poor 5-4 record so far this season with an access to the fourth round at the Australian Open and an isolated quarter-final in Doha.
